After putting her own twist to the "Harlem Shake," Azealia Banks debuts a cover of the Strokes' "Barely Legal."

Azealia changes it up and sings over the group's "Is This It" track, instead of rap. She debuted the Lindbergh Palace produced song earlier today while on New Zealand's George FM.

She's currently placing the final touches on her major-label debut album, "Broke With Expensive Taste." Azealia took to Twitter to announce that she'll release her first single, "Yung Rapunxel," produced by Lil Internet, will be available on iTunes on March 26.

 

She shared with George FM that "Yung Rapunxel" is a "dark, twisted sister song to '212'," according to Pitchfork. Azealia has also spent time in the studio with singer-songwriter, Ariel Pink.
